One of the many beauties of the British Open is that you can walk up to the gate and purchase a ticket. No ordering tickets years ahead of time. No lotteries. No waiting lists.
Converted into U.S. dollars, daily tickets during the four rounds of this year’s championship cost $91.84 for adults, $61.88 for those aged 65 and older and $38.27 for young adults aged 16-21. Anyone under the age of 16 gets in free.
There has been a steady stream of fans entering the grounds all morning and it’s sure to increase as the leaders begin their rounds. The final group of Louis Oosthuizen and Mark Calcavecchia are do to tee off at 4:40 p.m. local time (11:40 a.m. ET). – Helen Ross
